U.S. ponders Cuba policy WASHINGTON (AP) In- direct signals from Havana that Fidel Castro may be interested in talking with the United States have led the Ford administration to begin an extensive review of U.S. policy toward the Caribbean island. The Cuban premier is thought to be more receptive to a dialogue with Washington in order not to remain totally dependent on the Soviet Union, which supplies his regime with about million a day in aid. The feelers are being con- veyed sometimes through the occasional U.S. visitor to Cuba and also by a less-hostile posture generally by Cuba toward the United States. Although no firm decision is imminent, the policy review might eventually lead to a re- versal of the U.S. effort to iso- late Cuba from the rest of the hemisphere.

SN1FFEN WASHINGTON (AP) A member of Richard Nixon's family says the former president is "in a deep depression" which was not lifted by the presidential pardon he received. In addition, Nixon was said to be in physical pain from a phlebitis condition that had publicly been described as resolved last July. This family member said that Mrs. Nixon and other relatives are worried about the condition of the former president. The family member sought out a telephone interview Tues- day night, saying that "this is something someone should talk but asked not to be identified by name. This person has seen and spoken with Nixon both before and since the president resigned Aug. 9, and talked with Nix- on by telephone as recently as Monday night. This family member knew of no specific physical problem other than the phlebitis, a blood clot which developed in Nix- on's left leg just before his June trip to the Middle East.

"Emotionally he's still way down and that's what bothers me even the family member said. "He is in a deep depression. I would hope the pardon would eventually lift that but I just haven't noticed that. There was no sudden elation." Since the resignation, the former president has discussed his financial affairs with this member of the family. "I went over some things and he kept right up with this family member said.

"His mind and reason, his sense of values, his concern for the country, and his sense of realities won out in the end." The family member said that Nixon takes long, solitary walks through his San Clemente, Calif., estate. "In a sense that's his normal way of grappling with prob- lems, but you see he's always grappled with problems in the past where he could come up with a the family member said. "Here he's grappling with problems out of the past, out of his control. It's a question of living with the past." tcA "i 'It Storm sewer The storms came before this sewer line was finished, making for some mucky work at Scenic Drive and 4th Avenue S.
